Our goal is to maintain Miwok Stables as a model public riding facility, celebrating the many ways members of the public can enjoy an equestrian facility in our National Park and the rich history that it encompasses.  We would greatly appreciate your support.

The Programs We provide equestrian programs to those less fortunate. We have served groups from Sunny Hills Children’s Services, San Francisco Police Department Juvenile Division and Hunter’s Point City of Dreams, Marin General Hospital Cancer Recovery Unit, and more.

The Projects

  • A major clean-up including refurbishing of the residence, updating the horse stalls, repairing broken paddocks and barn siding and other deferred maintenance projects have been completed.
  • We have re-built the large outdoor riding ring, improving critical drainage and environmental issues.
  • Installed two large storage tanks and pump systems to ameliorate seasonal water shortages due to the variances of the natural springs.
  • Current Projects include moving all stalls away from the creek, which means building new stalls inside the haybarn, and building a new barn for the hay. NPS requirements also include drainage systems, ADA accessibility improvements, maintenance of the exterior of the historic Lopes House, and more.

The Benefits

  • Increased public riding, trail rides for the public, lessons for beginners, kids camps, and programs for equestrians at all levels.
  • Opportunities for non-riding members of the public interested in the history of an early California Ranch or the science of veterinary medicine
  • Through our maintenance and restoration of this 100-year-old historic ranch, and provision of recreational and educational programs, the ranch encourages healthy outdoor activity in an increasingly unnatural world.
